Google testing giant 5G Internet drones high above New Mexico desert

SPACEPORT AMERICA, NEW MEXICO — Internet behemoth Google is experimenting with drones that could deliver Internet speeds up to 40 times faster than 4G, according to a report in the Guardian. The Google project, known as Skybender, is using Spaceport America in New Mexico to conduct the experiments, which employ its giant 50-meter-wingspan Titan drones to deliver high-speed Internet from the air. The drones have been equipped with millimeter wave radio transmitters, a technology that could feature in next generation 5G wireless Internet. Optionally piloted Centaur aircraft are also being used, according to the report. Millimeter wave technology has the potential to transmit gigabits of data every second with speeds up to 40 times faster than 4G Internet. However, millimeter wave signals are absorbed by atmospheric gases, while rain and humidity can also reduce signal strength. Millimeter waves also travel via line of sight, and can be blocked by objects, including trees and buildings. The report said that Google has permission from the Federal Communications Commissions to continue testing in New Mexico until July.----------------------------------------­­---------------------Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
